CSA Shares for 2017 Now Available!
The program begins in mid-June and runs for 18 weeks. We will harvest what is ripe and ready and at its peak flavor and provide it for you weekly at your choice of pick up locations. Our varieties are chosen based on deliciousness and many will be heirlooms. We are non-certified organic and do not use chemicals. We also offer an 8 week winter share that begins immediately after the main season. We offer two different sizes of shares depending on how many vegetables you eat, and how much you cook at home. Work Shares are also available--help out on the farm in exchange for a CSA share!
Summer Full Share - $565 - 3/4 bushel box
This share is intended for 3-4 eaters or 2 veggie lovers, and will include about 8 to 12 (average of 10) different types of veggies. With larger portions of popular items, and more variety, the Full Share is our best value with a target of 20% off retail prices.
Summer Half Share - $350 - 1/2 bushel box
This share is intended for one to two eaters, or a family wishing to supplement their shopping trip or garden and will include about 6 to 9 (average of 8) different types of veggies. The target value is 15% off retail prices.
The Winter CSA program runs for 8 weeks starting immediately after the Summer CSA. This is the time of the year where we are able to harvest our winter baby salad mixes which have become popular in local co-ops and restaurants. Last season, we had fresh cut greens up until the last box of the season at the end of December. If you haven’t had fresh Minnesota winter greens before, you are in for a treat! At the start of the Winter CSA, the boxes will include mostly fresh crops from outdoors. As the season progresses, we will have less freshly harvested crops and more from storage—this depends on how cold it gets early on, but there should always be something fresh in each box. We select the hardiest of greens and harvest them at baby to half mature size. These greens are very tolerant of cold temps and low light and we grow them in high tunnels without any added heat.
Winter Full Share - $232 - 5/9 bushel box
5-8 different types of veggies (average of 7-8) with larger portions than the Half Share. Target value of 10% off retail prices.
